a girl in love photography


Photographing everywhere there is love and light | Detroit | Ann Arbor | Chicago & Worldwide

christina and matt . detroit . engagement session

I don’t know of a prettier city.. and I love New York, and Chicago is great and New Orleans holds a little part of my soul in it’s heart.. but Detroit.  Before I photographed for a living I never went into town.. stayed in the places I knew.. it was a strange big and kinda scary place.. now, well it’s my favorite city to photograph in.  It has it’s own beautiful heart and the more I look at it the more I can hear it beating.   Christina and Matt live right downtown and we spent an afternoon, a chilly one, walking and exploring and enjoying their front yard.  Here are a few of the images we made.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
